Error 101 after Step 4

Postby helena77 » Fri Sep 17, 2010 11:06 am

Hi,
I am trying to install Joomla on my PC, but after Step 4 (datbase info) I get this error report:
http://localhost/Joomla/installation/index.php cannot be accessed "Chyba 101(net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Neznámá chyba." In Czech meaning unknown error.

I have Windows7 with Apache 2.2, PHP5 and MySQL 5.1, keeping the database settings as recommended:
localhost, root, password, the database I choose exists... but I always get this error after the 4th step.

Any suggestions as to what could be wrong?
Advanced thanks,
Helena

No password. Leave the password blank. That works for me.

Thanks.. I will try.
In fact, I tried putting mysqli instead of mysql and it worked too, however, I got stuck after deleting the instalation folder... when I want to open the index through localhost I get error 101 again :(

hello Helena,
what is your windows 7 version? and how did you install your Appache?
if you used xammp, did you follow the special install instructions for windows 7?

best regards.... from the opposite side of Europe :) ehehehe

Hi :)
well, it is a 32bit version and I used this tutorial
http://www.webdevelopersnotes.com/how-d ... dows-7.php

I am no expert, I have more enthusiasm than knowledge and experience and so I have no clue what xammp is.

Oh.. and another thing I noticed, some tables appeared in the directory I chose in mysql... so it worked to some extent...

thanks again

well.. you have taken the long and difficult way to do a simple thing..

XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution containing MySQL, PHP and Perl. XAMPP is really very easy to install and to use - just download, extract and start.

http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

probably if you used xampp I didn't have that problem :)

The problem you hare having should be related with server configuration, on PHP or on Mysql...
and it is very hard to help you without accessing to your pc..

I think you should consider using xampp
best regards
